Is curiosity a cure? Or something else?

She was always curious about her life, about her existence. She wanted to know about everything, but she didn’t knew that knowing about everything is like being at every place on Earth, at the same time. Information was deforming her. She was not satisfied with what she knew, she wanted more! what was her cure? – Jackie Jain

She was feeling lost,
that too in her own body.
Curiosity.

She aims to touch sky,
But cannot fly with her thoughts
No velocity.

Fighting her feelings,
Burying her emotions
Oh! It was pity.

She desires for more,
Only seeks information
Ultimate deity.

She was curious,
Her anger ferocious,
And getting mighty.

Search information
Spreading like disease within
Will she be happy?

Happiness is in
Being less curious.
Live life lovingly.

Curiosity is important to get answers for our questions and doubts. But isn’t curiosity to know about everything, curiosity to be everywhere making us restless and unsatisfied!? There is 71% water on the Earth, but it doesn’t mean that when we feel thirsty we have to drink all that water. There is a limit to everything. Even to curiosity. But I am not saying that we don’t have to be curious. I am just saying that we should have prior knowledge of why we are curious on that? Limited curiosity, being curious for things we actually want to know rather than being curious for things just because they exist. Happiness is being satisfied and living life with love and care. Limit curiosity, get satisfied with your curiosity, that’s the ultimate happiness. Curiosity is the cure for information, but a disease if used too much in quantity.

A stranger in the mirror- By Jackie & Darshith

A story of two friends who used to meet daily, and still were strangers to each other. One day they finally thought to meet at a special place and then they became one.

There were two friends named Sapna and Kalpana. They were sitting opposite to each other with their eyes locked in each other. Even though they have met many a times before, but today for some reason they felt as strangers to each other. They felt as if they were from different worlds. As the friends are from two different worlds, we bring out this story from two different worlds of Words dipped in Happiness and Smiles here & Smiles there . As Darshith is a professional as Sapna, he will portray the story of Sapna. As my thoughts are still in search for a form, I will portray the story of Kalpana. How these two friends, become strangers and then become one? The two worlds merging into one. Our first and unique Collaboration. What’s so unique about this story? Keep reading.

Kalpana’s perspective:

Kalpana always felt as if she is just an imaginary character. She used to think that she has no life in real. There was always an dividing line between her thoughts and her ability to convert those thoughts into real life, and that dividing line was a form. She always lacked form to do anything. There was no shape for her life dimensionally. She has no existence. She lived among billions of neurons, but still her thoughts were ignored. Her passion was overflowing within, but there was no body to fill it. Just like there is lot of oxygen in this world, still you need to breath it in for respiration, similarly, even though she had a lot of passion about her life, but there was no body, no container to fill that passion. Her life was like an unsolved puzzle. She was just an illusion to her own thoughts. She was struck in between her life (imaginary) and her passion about life. She was in search of a body where her soul can fulfill her passion. She felt as if she was just a soul. She thought that her parents have given her a perfect name ‘Kalpana’ which means ‘Imaginary’ in Hindi. She was just an imagination to her own self. She was the soul, and she was in search of a body, a body to fulfill her passion. Kalpana has the wings to fly, but not a body to feel the flight. She has everything that has the power to be successful and reach the destiny, but she needs the body, the legs to walk towards destiny. She always has great admiration for her friend Sapna. Kalpana feels that Sapna has a body through which her soul can fulfill her passion. But still Kalpana is confused that why Sapna is not following her passion! What’s stopping Sapna! Kalpana just wishes that Sapna’s body becomes Kalpana’s and Kalpana’s passion become Sapna’s. But Sapna has a different set of problems. Let’s check out her life.

Sapna’s perspective:

I am a computer who walks, talks, speaks, shits & exists. I am not living. Living is attached to something that has life in it & passion to survive. Oh, I so love the word passion, even though I haven’t pursued mine. Don’t ask me WHY? Even I ask myself the same and neglect the question. As dear is the word passion to me so are the excuses. Excuses like I am busy with work, I have a life, I am in search of happiness but won’t do much to actually achieve it. My name is Sapna meaning ‘dreams’ in Hindi. I hope that my parents named me Sapna because I was a dream to them & not because they wanted me to follow my dreams. Following dreams requires wings for our passion to fly high with the wind. My passion had died and been buried deep inside my heart since the day I joined IT job. It has been nothing but a robotic schedule to be followed for 5 days a week. It’s a simple equation i.e., Intake of free biscuits + coffee should yield a code. One has to fit in that equation without being an exception. Lack of sleep, excess tensions, deadlines, issues, client calls has made life monotonous, snatched away my passion & made me emotionless and lifeless. I am searching for that silver lining, that ray of hope which will make me passionate again, which will make me alive again, bring back the lost charm. I want to stay true to my name & for that I will be meeting my friend Kalpana, who has her own set of problems. We are finally meeting today at a place she chose & today I want to open up to her & speak my doubts and fears.

Conclusion:

After being fed up with their corresponding lives, finally Sapna and Kalpana made up their mind to meet at a place with a clear mind. And that place was the mirror. Sapna, the girl with a passionless body and Kalpana, the mirror image (Soul-fie) of Sapna with imaginary thoughts of passion without a body, were sitting opposite to each other in front of a mirror. With a clear mind without previous attachments, they felt as strangers to each other. Yes, for the first time they realized the importance of each other. They came to know that they are not made to live two different lives, but just one life. The life which makes them complete. The life which gives a body to the passion. The passion which gives wheels to the life. From that day they became one. Sapna and Kalpana turned into reality. It is whether body found the soul or soul found the body, but at last passion found its Destiny.

The clouds of words- Stories

Stories are just like storeys. Stories have words as the building blocks and storeys have bricks as the building blocks. Storeys are constructed higher and stories are constructed deeper.
– Jackie Jain

Stories..  so we all have them in our minds. Actually we all live in stories with ourselves as the heroes in them. The villian of the story is our brain. We have to keep the activities of that villian, thoughts, in control. Heroin of the story, is our heart. We have set free that chained heart. It is done by controlling our thoughts. Giving them a direction and bringing them back to track of goodness is the theme of the story. This works on the principle of working of laws of attraction. Like attracts like thoughts. Control your thoughts, Set your heart free and be the hero of your story.

We all keep telling stories to others so that they can relate to them or to find a better path for their life. We tell stories inorder to live. Stories never end, they are just repeated with a different hero. Stories, they are the portals which takes us to a new world with our eye as the medium and thoughts as the traveller. We forget where we are and land in a world where words count is the population and story is the world itself. Sitting on the words we travel deeper and deeper into the story and understand its plot. What a wonderful kind of journey it is!!

Stories, they are like a cloud of words. Words which rest in books gets dried and forms clouds in our brain while we read them. When we process those clouds, they burst and meaning of those words keep raining in our brain. We travel in that raindrops to a new different world. Our seeds of thinking grows by this process which helps us in turning us into a better person. Yes, stories.. we all have at least one in our mind. We keep them safe in our thoughts locked in neurons. Unlock them. Our world needs rainfall of words for the growth of thinking capabilities.

Thanks for reading. Have a good time. Time for a wordy rainfall.

Thoughts: The headlines of our inner newspaper

Our morning thoughts are like the head lines of the inner news paper, circulated in our body, to set up the perfect mood for the smooth running of the day. Keep them positive and inspiring.

Yes, there is a news paper in our body which is circulated by our nerves to the whole body. The information published and circulated by that news paper is our thoughts. The writers of those important articles are our neurons. Thoughts once generated are circulated by the nerves throughout our body. Even though generating thoughts which will create a change is difficult, keep thinking. Thinking is the hardest part so only few engage in it. Don’t over stress though.

Thoughts, they rule our day. They are like the match sticks required to lit up our passion filled candles. We are occupied with what we think. We become what we keep thinking about often and find a way to build those thoughts into reality.

It is often the thoughts that differentiate successful and unsuccessful people. So if we think that everyone is successful, then everyone is damn successful. But in this identity seeking world, it is difficult to live as successful, without proving others that we actually are. So then came competition, rather than Cooperation. Just imagine what if the words which we think, compete with each other. Will there be any meaning of what we think? No. The perfect cooperation, chain and combination of words make our thoughts meaningful. I always wonder how our thoughts are generated? In the form of words, or in the words of images or some sort of medium which we are yet to discover?!  But I know they are like magic. Yes, the ability to think. The ability to create thoughts. The ability to arrange them in a meaningful way.

As there is a very famous quote,
“Sleep with an idea, wake up with a plan.” It is apt. When we sleep our cache memory of thoughts gets deleted automatically and junk files which bother us also gets deleted. We find ways to get out of a problem and think of solution instead of just thinking about the consequences of the problem. That’s why morning thoughts are very important. Even after the darkest nights, there will be a sunrise. So even after the darkest phase of life, there is a light we can generate. Yes, from within. Our thoughts. The light of our thoughts. They set the momentum for the day. Keep them positive and inspiring. Positivity and inspiration spreads quickly.

Keep the head lines of your inner newspaper positive and inspiring so that your readers, I mean the cells of your body, functions well with creativity and passion. Yes, your thoughts are like the head lines of your inner news papers, the news of tomorrow. Because your thoughts are responsible for the upcoming activities of your life. And activities, they are the head lines. Our inner news paper is published for making us ready to face the future. To face the world.

[Inner News paper concept mentioned here is just to describe that our thoughts has the power to be the headlines of news paper.]

Thanks for reading. Keep publishing the magical headlines.

The secret of life- Controlled Growth

We shouldn’t wish for growth of everything in our life, as being humans we have both strengths and flaws already embedded in us. When we wish for growth, everything grows with it. So we should go for a controlled improvement. Controlled growth.

Life is a manufacturing company which produces temporary homes in the form of bodies for souls. There are different departments that the company Life have to handle. Brain, Heart, Senses, Feelings, Bones, Muscles, Nerves etc are some of the important departments that the company has to handle. Like in any other company, Life also faces the term called defect. In the system of production, there are different loop holes which for Life has no solution. Coming to the point, life produces defective bodies with imperfect senses.

Whereas we, the Souls are perfect without any defect. But the problem is that we don’t have a form. We need something in which we can dwell and carry out our functions and reach out to our destiny. The souls made a deal with life to manufacture bodies for them in which they can live. Life though felt happy with this offer but later it thought it was difficult to product bodies with large dimensions in such a small time. So it finally declared that Life will make baby-bodies for soul which will grow with time. But life made one mistake. Yes, now we come to the main issue, it didn’t apply controlled growth. So the bodies grow with time along with strength as well as weakness. There is no stopping for that.

Life realized its mistake but it was too late. The bodies were ready, so to cover its mistake it made a ‘how to rectify your defects’ guide for each body and saved them on the palms of the human bodies. Yes, that’s the map to our perfection. That’s the map to our destiny. Though the map is available on our hands, we have to make use of our senses to seek for that perfection, with our imperfect senses.

What is this controlled growth!? It means growing our strengths and cutting down our weaknesses. That’s the secret to our life. Every soul is perfect, defects are in our bodies. (And we don’t love anyone just by seeing their cars(bodies), ‘we’ start loving them by understanding the person who drives them, (the souls)).

There are minimum defects in every body. Some have anger, some anxiety, some hatred, some fear, some ego and some pride. But they all are in the processor of the body, MIND, not in the person (soul), who operates them. With time they increase. So we have to minimize our defects approximately to zero( Zero is ideal) in the present time, so that the growth of defects doesn’t matter much in future. We should try to master our emotions and senses, so that we have a control over them.

As there is a famous saying, when grown, we should cut nails, not fingers. Similarly we have to cut down the grown weaknesses not the growing strengths. I think I have a defect of writing too much lengthy articles (may be) that too on a weekend, which I will try to control. And if it’s a strength I will try to improve. Haha.. Have a great weekend.

Let’s make controlled growth in our life as the goal for 2016. Thanks for reading.

For that one passionate Neuron

Writing is like a building, which word by word we have to build to make it as a permanent home in the hearts of the readers.

Writing, which I consider is one of the oldest professions in the world for the reason that they say even our fate is also written. It is not easy to arrange the words in such a way that they sound not only meaningful but also creative. Words arranged in such a way, that they smile back at the reader and seek their attention are the words which create an impact. It is the perfect combination of words which makes the reader read it till the end. However how much creative combination of words it may be, they will end at some time while reading. But when the words end in a written article, they should take a rebirth in the minds of the reader. It should be the revolution which when ends in written words, starts wandering in the brains of the readers as thoughts and wander till they finally settle in the heart. The thoughts which make the readers think, think about their own abilities and creativity, driving them towards their passion with words as the force.

There is magic filled in the ideas, which comes out only when they are thought upon. Everything starts with a spark in that one neuron which is passionate to shine, which initiates the thought, and once it is on track, it forms a light. The darkness in our brain is filled with the light of the thoughts. Suddenly we start shining from inside. The path to destiny is not outside, it is inside. Within you. Just hiding in darkness, waiting for that one passionate neuron to shine and to come out. Not only our fate is written, it is also timed. But we don’t know the perfect unit, scale and parameters of time with which our fate is timed. So we should consider our confidence as the scale of time and passion as the unit of time. Once the passion of our life is filling continuously, the destiny is near. It’s in you, just waiting to come out. To come out and settle in the hearts of readers forever. Pick a topic and start thinking, to which topic is your neuron shining? Follow that light. There’s your destiny.
